Britney Spears – ‘Make Me…’ featuring G-Eazy

Britney Spears has just dropped her first new single from her upcoming ninth studio album, ‘Make Me…’

The song is seductive and an interesting new direction for Britney; it’s a blend of R&B and dub, using high-pitched vocal samples (similar to Justin Bieber‘s sound) and her breathy vocals. She is also joined by G-Eazy for a verse.

I am incredibly in love with this track and desperate to hear her new album!

No official video has been released as yet, but we’ll keep you updated on this. *UPDATE* The official video has now been released and can be viewed below – what are your thoughts?

What do you think of this new Britney track? Are you a fan? Are you eagerly anticipating her new album?


‘Make Me…’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/make-me…-feat.-g-eazy-single/id1134710305



Nelly Furtado – ‘Behind Your Back’

Nelly Furtado is now gearing up to release her sixth studio album with the first new single since 2012, ‘Behind Your Back’.

The song has an interesting guitar riff throughout and heavy bass lines in the chorus as well as some distorted effects on her vocals. It’s an interesting new sound for her and sounds more like a soft release than a hard-hitting lead single from the album.

Nevertheless, it’s a great sound and left me wanting more! Again, no official video has been released as yet, but we’ll keep you updated on this.

Would you like to hear more of the album? Is this going to become your new favourite Nelly Furtado track? What are your thoughts?

It’s been four years since any new music has emerged from her, but Nelly Furtado is finally back with an acoustic cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘Feel So Close’.

The song is not the most obvious choice for a first new single, but it shows off her voice superbly.

It’s given me a taste for her new music and I can’t wait for her sixth album now!

What do you think of this cover? Are you a Nelly Furtado fan? Excited for her new album? Please share your #MellowMonday song choices with us in a comment below or on our social media accounts.

Have a great week everyone!
